Ok, so the answer was pretty obvious to anyone knowledgeable on ATSC (not
me).  Trying to dump the TS to a file won't work until you've set the
video/audio PIDs in channels.conf; the make_atsc_chanconf.pl script only
fills in the other fields (station names and frequencies).  To see which
PIDs are active, you can use the "dvbtraffic" utility while azap is running
on the half-finished channels.conf.

Maybe a comment to this effect could be added to the README for [s|c|t|a]zap
in dvb-apps?

Thanks to everyone who did the work to get these cards supported.  I've been
enjoying the Olympics in 1080i on my $29 (US) Ebay special :)  Works great.
